Drinking tea from an empty cup [Jun. 20th, 2008|10:23 pm]
Love for Bruce



I'll be watching a Longstreet marathon tonight after FINALLY getting my hands on the DVD box set!

cost a small fortune but still ...

For those that still don't know; Bruce guest starred as 'Li Tsung' in a 70's TV series called Longstreet.
It stars James Franciscus as a blind insurance investigator who works on cases with a heavy detective style slant. The actual episodes that Bruce appears in(particularly "Way of the Intercepting Fist")are obviously priceless, but I happened to love the moments without him too. Enough for me to go through with the rather expensive task of ordering the DVD's(which can be found here
The quality of the transfer is superb(although sound is only mono, due I suppose to them not filming such shows in stereo back in 1971), and the japanese subtitles can be turned off.
Why the show has yet to have a commercial DVD release in english speaking countries let alone it's home ground america still remains a mystery!
Here's a couple pics of the box case art too, it's pretty damn cool I think

there's artwork on all sides

and under the discs themselves

A scene from one of the episodes too~
